[SEMU-YÉOL Lecture] 2017 March
Challenging Authenticity and Integrity: Three Cases of Historic Houses and Human-caused Disasters in Seoul
(Trilogy of Relocation, Intervention and Adaptive reuse with a focus on the Residence of Han Gyu Seol)
Lecturer: Cho In Souk
Architect, Principal of DaaRee Architect & Associates
In the last two years, Cho had the opportunity to present three case studies of Seoul’s historic houses on the verge of demolition due to South Korea’s rapid and dramatic urbanization. Originally located in central Seoul, the houses were dismantled, reassembled and relocated or completely destroyed. The research of these houses was submitted to many international journals and presented at various international scientific symposiums: the first part of the trilogy, a case study of the residence of Han Gyu Seol, was presented at the 50th year anniversary of the ICOMOS Scientific Symposium in Warsaw, June 2015; the second, a case study of the YI Seung Eop House, was presented at the ICOMOS Administration Committee Scientific Symposium in Fukuoka, October 2015; and the third, a case study of Shinmungwan and Joseon-Gwangmunhoe, was presented at the ICOMOS Administration Committee Scientific Symposium in Istanbul, October 2016. Through an examination of these three case studies, this lecture will provide you with an opportunity to think about relocation, intervention and adaptive reuses of historical houses.
